If you have or are thinking of getting a Lillebaby carrier here are some Lillebaby carrier instructions to help you get started.
These instructions are specific to the Lillebaby Complete carrier and whilst they will be similar for all Lillebaby carriers, it's important to consult the specific instructions of the particular carrier you have.
How to Put on an LilleBaby Carrier
It's really important to get the setup of your carrier correct.
Setting the carrier up optimally will:
- Ensure that baby is at their safest
- Reduce the amount of fatigue you will feel whilst carrying baby
- Reduce the likelihood of any aches and pains that might develop
- Ensure that baby is in the right position
OK, let’s get started.
LilleBaby Carrier Instructions: Lillebaby Complete Setup and Different Carry Positions
The Lillebaby Complete has 6 different carry positions, though in reality there are 4 main carry positions:
- Front facing-in
- Front facing-out
- Hip carry
- Back carry
With the 2 extra positions being slight variations of the Front Facing-In position:
- Front Facing-In Fetal (for 0-3 months)
- Front Facing-In Toddler (for 6+ months)
Front facing-in (Infant 0-12 months)
This position is appropriate for babies between 0 and 12 months.
Here’s how you do it:
Front facing-in (Fetal 0-3 months)
This is alternative you can use for when your baby is between 0 and 3 months.
OK, here’s how you do it.
Front facing-in (Toddler 6+ months)
Once your baby is 6 months, this position becomes an option. And is the option that should be used when using the Facing-In position once your baby is 12 months or older.
OK, here’s how you do it.
Lillebaby recommends waiting until baby is at around 6 months old and has strong and consistent head control before wearing baby in this position.
We think 6 months is a nice time to try this position to see if baby likes it.
Lillebaby recommends to wait until baby is at least 6 months before trying the hip carry position. Once your baby is at least 6 months and you feel that they are capable of this position, you can try this position to see if you and your baby like it.
Lillebaby recommends that the back carry position isn’t used until at least 6 months (and is comfortably able to have their feet wider enough for the position).
Personally, this isn’t an position I am comfortable with (mentally) until baby is older – more like 9 months and up, but everyone has their own comfort levels for this kind of thing.
So there's the instructions for putting on the Lillebaby Complete carrier. Remember that each carrier might be slightly different, so it's a good idea to consult the specific instructions for the carrier that you have.
That said, a lot of Lillebaby's carriers have a similar feel for putting on.
We hope that this provides a convenient place for seeing the instructions for all the positions of this carrier in one place and helps to describe the different carry position options.
